The new Games with Gold and PS Plus lineups go live very soonThe Games with Gold April 2017 lineup is set to be replaced on Monday May 1, giving fans less than 24hrs to procure any of the existing titles.
Games with Gold in April offered a solid roster of titles to choose from, with Ryse: Son of Rome kicking everything off on April 1.
It was further bolstered by the launch of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2, a game that scored great reviews following its original launch back in 2013.
Luckily, fans will be able to download the Walking Dead until May 15, although all other current titles are set to be replaced very soon.
This includes the Xbox 360 classic Assassin's Creed Revelations, which is available to play on Xbox One as it's one of the many backwards compatible games Microsoft have released for the popular program.

PlayStation Plus May 2017 REVEAL: Sony set to unveil free PS4 games

The May selection will soon be here, although it might not prove quite as interesting a collection as last month’s.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Director’s Cut will be free during the full month of May, while Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris will be available as a free download from May 16th to June 15th.
Neither are quite on the same level as April’s selection, although there’s also two Xbox 360 games that can be picked up.
On Xbox 360, starting Monday, May 1st, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II  will be available until May 15th, when it will be replaced on May 16th with LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga through May 31st.
For those interested, the PlayStation Plus May 2017 lineup has also been confirmed by Sony, bringing new titles to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
From Tuesday, May 2, PS Plus subscribers can download Alienation and Tales from the Borderlands for PS4.
Unfortunately, however, there doesn't appear to be any Cross-Buy games on offer in May, with Blood Knights and Port Royale 3: Pirates and Merchants joining PS3 and Laser Disco Defenders and Type: Rider coming to PlayStation Vita.
